Firstgear Rush Mesh Jacket 4.4 5 58 58
Longer sleeves would be nice That is my only issue... Other features as stated. High visibility is a must. October 6, 2014
Thank you for selling Tall sizes! Picked this up as my first motorcycle jacket. So far it's been great. Solid airflow (could be a hair better), removable liner is convenient, Hi Viz matches my Exo-1100 Jag perfectly, and I can't be any more thankful for tall sizes. The style is nice, visible but not ridiculous. Won't hesitate to get some firstgear stuff again. And as always, Revzilla is an A++++ in my book. August 28, 2014
Best warm weather jacket for the money. I just completed a 1000 mile ride in this jacket through 100° desert and 50° mountain temperatures. I even encountered some light rain. This jacket was perfect. In the heat I hardly broke a sweat. In the cooler temps the removable liner kept me warm and dry. I highly recommend this jacket. August 8, 2014
Nice Jacket Have been pleased with this purchase. It fits well and allows plenty of air flow for hot days. The liner looks like it would work fine, but I just carry a Frog Toggs jacket that fits over it in case of a shower. I find the snaps at the wrist end of the sleeves to be a little awkward to snap, but it is getting easier. All in all, this jacket seems a very good value given the relatively low price. Additionally, I have received very good service over the years from all of the First Gear products I have owned. June 2, 2014
It does its job. Took a soil going about forty - jacket held up very nice, no damage to my skin. Cons- padding/protection seems a biiiiiit loose, not too bad. In reality, very few jackets fit like a glove. Pros - price, airflow, durability. I'm 5'10" 180 pounds, athletic body type. May 20, 2014
Good with reservations This is a well made jacket. But the arm length is shorter than advertised. I measure 37 inch arm length and a 2XT is listed as 38 inches but it is an inch too short. I removed the shoulder armor also to try and get a little extra hang from the shoulders . It is a warm weather jacket so I will keep it. I recommend this jacket if you remember a 2XT has about a 36 inch arm length. April 23, 2014
Great Mesh Jacket Living in Florida means riding in Heat..... I've used First Gear equipment for many years, this is the first of their garments, "What took me so long?" This is a great compromise between protection and ventilation, leaning more toward protection. The fit is right on with the chart. I only have one minor quibble: The sleeves are not quite long enough for me, to get longer sleeves I would have had to get a bigger jacket. All the rest of the fit is perfect. April 21, 2014
Nice Jacket at a good price. I think this was just what I was looking for in a lightweight summer jacket with decent protection. The style is nice and the fit worked for me. I am 6'4" 180# and the large tall fit just right. I am always worried the arm length will be too short for my long reach, but not a problem with this jacket. Definitely a good value at this price. I would recommend it to others. April 7, 2014

A shopper asked: Is the silver very visible? I want to be seen on my cruiser and am torn between silver and neon yellow.
Neon obviously would be more visible, but don't want to look like a canary!!

Karl A: I have the Yellow version and would recommend it before all other colors!
Years ago a DUI driver hit me head on and broke my right thumb so badly that the doctor said it would never work again and it should be cut off. My left thumb had already been blown off and I made him set the right thumb and it is fine.
In 2012 I drove south, west north and back east, saw 9000 miles of the USA and the First Gear Mesh saw me through sea level in Florida, below sea level and intense heat in the western deserts, sea level and the cold north and the Pacific in California, then almost 12,000 feet and snow and hail in Montana. At no time did any vehicle try to cut across coming towards me and it was a safe ride.
For the winter my son has the bike and jacket in Austin TX , I get it back in May. He thinks the yellow is the way to go also and is very impressed with the deference vehicles have given him.
Hope this helps---"Ride Safe!

Karl A: My PC stuttered yesterday and hope this in not a repeat.
I have the yellow, (actually has slight green cast).
Toured the USA in 2012, put on 9000 miles, also had a buddy on his bike and he had the yellow model too.
Back in 64, a DUI auto driver hit me head on and broke the one thumb I have. There have been too many times I've had to juke to avoid getting hit so I want visibility! On my riding with the Firstgear Mesh on its been very good and my recommendation is: pick yellow!
Ride safe,

Gloria G: I'm not sure why this was sent to me. I bought hubby the neon version. In the daytime, his black mesh coat(another man.) is not nearly as visible as the neon color. At night, the reflective strip is quite visible. As a wife that cares about his cool factor and his safety, I worried. To be honest, a lot of riders are wearing neon, even if it means buying a neon vest and putting over the jacket. Why do double duty? I know about his visibility because I also ride so I have checked his visibility. Hope that helps. Mar 23, 2014

Walter D: I have the hi-viz yellow in this jacket and I think it's great. Living in SoCal, it can get pretty warm and the Rush Mesh let's the air flow really well. I am a firm believer in hi-viz colors and both my riding jackets are yellow. Better to be a canary that's seen than a crow that gets crushed!

Roger Z: Studies have shown that our eyes are more drawn to bright green colors and bright fluorescent yellow as well... this is why all school zone signs and pedestrian crossing signs are in that came color... silver, not so much.. it gets lost in the hazy shades of the sky, mostly. Jul 14, 2014

Steven T: Yeah, it's visible, but not like neon would be. I even asked my wife who's followed me in the car before and she said she had no problem seeing me. Past that, hard to answer your question. Sure, more than black, less than neon.

Let's great air through too.

robert k asked: I'm 5'9" and weight 220lbs with a 44" chest. I have a longer torso and slightly short arms. I am trying to pick between the L and the XL. Any Advice? Jun 18, 2014

Karl A: Me = 5'6", 145 lbs; have medium sized jacket. Arm length a tad long--untill hands on the bars and riding, then perfect!

Wore this jacket around the US in 2012 and it was outstanding from the heat of the deserts and below sea level to snow and hail at 12,000 feet on the Bear Tooth Highway. Put 90 miles short of 9000 in 28 days of (as I put it at 78 years of age) "Sublime punishment". Our country has to be seen to fully appreciate the wonder of all that we have!

I highly recomend this jacket and knowing the kind of service we get from Revzilla, I suggest you measure your arm lenght, call service and they will get you into the correct size!

Dan R: I am 5'6 220 and got the XL. The arms fit perfect on me as most jackets are to long when I buy XL. Plenty of room in the belly area. Not to long at the waist as it doesn't bunch up but if you have a long torso you might get some air at the bottom. I don't though. I removed the rain liner as I rather be cold than hot any day. I commute with this jacket and it's low 50's when I leave and with a long sleeve Tee underneath it's comfortable. On hot days a regular Tee underneath gets plenty of cooling air. Jun 20, 2014

Mary Jane V: My husband is 5'7" and weighed 185 when he bought this jacket. His arms are slightly long for his height. The jacket fit him very well. Similar chest measurement as well. Sounds like you could use the xl Jun 18, 2014

Dave D: I found that these tend to run a bit on the smaller size. I'm 6'3" and 215 and had to go with the 2xl tall to have a bit of room for a sweatshirt or sweater in colder months. Jun 18, 2014

A shopper asked: Why does this jacket under the cold weather tag? Will it stand up to cold weather? Jul 3, 2012

rayjay03: This is a mesh jacket. The only insulation/wind protection you have is the zip in/out lining. With that said the lining is of good quality and I have ridden in temps in the upper 40s for a hour or so. At the end of the ride I was chilly. This is a fine coat down to the low mid 50s for a short time and really shines as the temps rise. May 27, 2013

TheSneach: Rode to work with the liner this morning running 55mph on country roads. Windy day with an ambient temperature of 50 degrees. The jacket was comfortable, and kept me warm. Since it is a mesh jacket I am not sure I would try it in much colder weather, but it held up well. Oct 29, 2012

A shopper asked: What's the best back protection for the First Gear Rush Mesh Jacket? Is there a pocket to add protection i.e. SAS-TEC? Jun 26, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: Though FirstGear doesn't have a specific back protector option that they recommend, there is a pocket to insert one and you can cut the Sas-Tec to fit. The pocket is relatively small compared to other jackets and is shaped like long rectangle from top to bottom. Jul 29, 2011

Ray F: On a Large - Tall jacket the front (bottom of the zipper to top of the collar) measures 25". On the back it measures 31" (from the bottom - waist of the coat to the top of the collar, center of jacket). I am 6' 3" 210 lbs and It fits me very well. I would like an inch more arm length in the sleeves (I normally wear 36"+ shirt sleeves) but compared to other jackets this fit me the best. It's a great jacket and very versatile. I recommend it.
